I have been trying to find a way to access the the maximum width of a large image as set on the media settings page? In my theme I am grabbing images from a server and have the ability to specify the size when I grab them. I want to grab the image with the width set for the large image size on the media settings page.

The sizes are stored in the options table in the database, so you can grab values with get_option('large_size_w');

The values stored in the DB are:

  • thumbnail_size_w
  • thumbnail_size_h
  • medium_size_w
  • medium_size_h
  • large_size_w
  • large_size_h
